A must-read for everybody

So much has been written in praise of this beloved story that I could not possibly add anything new. The deceptively simple tale of Wilbur the pig and the erudite spider who selflessly worked to keep him from becoming breakfast meat is known and loved by all who read it. E.B. White's beautiful, sinuous, poetic prose and Garth Williams' lovely line drawings complement each other perfectly - a great collaboration between author and illustrator. A children's story? Don't let that fool you, or keep you from glorying in this lovely book yourself. The story is as beautifully and robustly full of life as the seasons he lovingly describes, simultaneously simple and profound, as joyous and sad as the circle of life itself. Unforgettable. We, and our children, are fortunate to have this book.
